If you want to have a very good replacement for an iPhone X, this high end device is a good choice! The face recognition works perfectly. The phone is very fast and reacts without delay. The few photos I took are fully satisfying my requirements. The fingerprint sensor in the screen works very well. I previously had the Honor 8 and wanted to have a look at the specifications of this phone. So far I do not regret this purchase. I recommend everyone to pay 100€ more and also to buy the 8pro version here. You do nothing wrong.

The device itself is okay for the price! Unfortunately, the touch me fully mature and not comparable with an iPhone. The USB C cable doesn’t lift properly after 4 months (I still have to report!) Otherwise it is a great experience with MIUI and overall okay!

Xiaomi is currently trying to get a foothold in the German market, with one of the first devices with an onscreen fingerprint sensor I thought I could give Xiaomi a chance. The fingerprint sensor is good too, not as reliable as conventional sensors but I think it’s quite good for the first generation. AMOLED display with Always on and one-handed mode is on board, altogether a lot I like.
But: The device regularly opens a random app from the home screen after unlocking. A firmware update didn’t bring any improvement and the support already advised me to reset the device several times. Of course I did that, but it didn’t bring any improvement. Even a replacement device from Amazon did not bring any improvement. So I’m not only disappointed by the device but also by Xiaomi itself.
The device has an infrared face unlock sensor in the notch, but this is not available in Germany (probably generally with GlobalROM). Some internet forums say that it works with other models if you change the region. But this did not work for me. In the Amazon article description the function is not mentioned, so from this point of view everything is correct, but still it is very sad, especially since the Notch is very big because of all the sensors. Another negative thing to mention is that Android Auto does not work. Somewhere I had read that the Snapdragon 845 has a problem with this in general, but I didn’t pursue this topic further. In any case, the device is going back, for a price of over 500€ (currently 438€) I expect more. I don’t know if I will ever buy a Xiaomi device again.
